Last Thursday evening, a California Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer, Ezequiel Garcia, shot Kevin Kozak, his superior officer, six times.
The shooting was said to be incited from an argument during Garcia’s performance counseling. Fortunately, Kozak is in stable condition. Garcia was shot and killed by a third officer nearby. It was stated by Garcia’s wife that they were considering divorce after 14 years of marriage. She believes that Garcia’s actions could be related to the pending divorce.
“We are doing everything humanly possible to understand why it happened and ensure it will not happen again,” said Special Agent in Charge, Claude Arnold.
